The Bold and the Beautiful hit the jackpot casting veteran television, film and stage performers Anna Marie Horsford and Obba Babatundé to play the parents of Maya and Nicole Avant, played by Karla Mosley and Reign Edwards.

On Friday’s episode, as Vivienne and Julius Avant, Horsford and Babatunde’ made their B&B debuts in some high emotional stakes scenes, as Julius (the disapproving father) wants to whisk Nicole out of LA and back to Illinois and far away from the supposed influence of Maya.

Later, when Maya comes face-to-face with her parents, who are waiting for her inside the Forrester mansion living room, and after Vivienne asks Julius to be open to the possibilities of having a relationship with their daughter, Maya is shocked when she sees her father and asks … why is he here? Julius walks over to Maya and hugs her, and then says, “I had to see my little girl.”  And thus begins the next part of The Bold and the Beautiful’s masterful telling of the story of Maya Avant – a transgender woman and her journey of love and acceptance from those closest to her.

Watch the scene featuring Anna, Obba, and Karla after the jump, and next the latest promo from CBS Daytime for next week, as the drama continues in this important story on a daytime TV.   Then share your thoughts of the debuts of Anna Marie and Obba, and the writing of Maya’s story?

Ms. Horsford is a great comedy actor, wonderful seeing her play drama, and so well. The entire scene with Maya, mom and dad was riveting without being inappropriately sensational. Kudos.

Often the best comedic performers are very good doing drama. The story line is interesting, for sure, and daring in its trappings, but the core of parents, expectations, and finding true self in life, are evergreen. And it is refreshing B&B has a plot other than the tiresome bedroom roundelays and endlessly unresolved triangles among in-laws.

I wonder where the Avants will be in a year. Is this family a keeper for B&B?

Friday wasn’t their debut, as Horsford arrived on July 3 and Babatundé on July 9. But in just a few days, these two actors did a great job showing the feelings the Avants had about Maya. We heard about it before from Maya and Nicole, but it was more powerful hearing them say the words.

I’m wondering what’s up with that hug. Could Julius really have turned around that quickly because of what Nicole said to him?

I agree that the casting is terrific…but I really think the writers should have dug deeper in back story… I find myself FF’g thru many of the episodes thus far.

On another note, I like the new B&B, but the silliness of taking down Stephanie’s portrait and replacing it with Maya’s takes away from the strong storyline…. c’mon… that’s like putting up Steffy or Hope’s pic…. utterly ridiculous.

Nice to take a good long break from Brooke and her whining however!

Y&R Shares ‘Most Memorable Moments Of Dina Mergeron’: What Was Your All-Time Favorite?

Yesterday, viewers of The Young and the Restless needed the hankies as they had to say goodbye to the character of Dina Mergeron and actress Marla Adams who was killed-off the CBS Daytime drama series due to Dina’s battle with Alzheimer’s coming to a a heartbreaking end.

Adams had been with the series on and off for over five decades.  In story and during her run, when Dina reappeared or disappeared it was a game-changer for the Abbott family.  She was a wealthy woman who often put her own needs in front of her children and her marriage to John Abbott (Jerry Douglas).  From affairs, leaving her children when they were young, to becoming a manipulative business woman, Dina Mergeron was no push-over.

When Marla Adams returned to the series four years ago in 2017, it was the intent that during Dina’s decline from Alzheimer’s  disease that she would reunite with her children and help the family find some inner-peace from all the damage and pain she had caused them through the years.

In honor of the wonderful portrayal of Marla Adams, Y&R put together a clip package of some of Dina’s most memorable moments.   You can watch it below!

Then let us know, what was your all time favorite Dina moment via the comment section below.   And if you have not done so already, make sure to check out Michael Fairman TV’s farewell interview with Marla, posted shortly after Dina passed on Friday’s episode.

In the lyrics you here Max sing, “I’m afraid to love you, love you/ Afraid to give in my all.   Then in the chorus he laments: “I’m afraid to love you, love you / Love you with my whole heart.”

 

One of the verses contains the lines: “Don’t want to disappoint you / No, I don’t want to lose you, no, no, no / You make me feel so good inside / I’ve been broken so many times / I’m just trying to stay alive / I’m afraid, I’m afraid.”

“Afraid” has many believing the song was written about Max’s public break-up with Lovato, however, Ehrich tells Billboard: “I hope ‘Afraid’ will help people allow themselves to be vulnerable,  I recorded this song as I was falling in love. It speaks of all the emotions that I was going through at that time.”
